The actor seemed impressed with the performances of Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone, Richa Chadda and Supriya Pathak in Bhansali's movie, which is an adaptation of William Shakespeare's tragedy 'Romeo and Juliet'.

"The genius of Sanjay Leela, the passion of Deepika and Ranveer, the guile of Supriya and the rawness of Richa," he wrote.
